Looking for a last-minute gift? Adopt a burrowing owl for the holidays

Dec 22, 2023 | Burrowing Owls, In the News

Looking to fill your favorite animal lover’s stocking this year? The Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife is hoping the public will adopt a burrowing owl this holiday season to help ensure the future home of Cape Coral’s official bird in a rapidly developing city.

CCFW offers a range of adoption packages that include burrowing owl merchandise.

The campaign’s mission is to raise funds to purchase land for the preservation and protection of wildlife in Cape Coral that includes the burrowing owl, gopher tortoise, Florida scrub jay, bald eagle, manatee, purple martin and others.

The Cape is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world with one of the largest burrowing owl colonies in the United States, CCFW said, adding they want to keep it that way forever.

And the best way to do that by buying lots with burrowing owls nests.
